Where the Locals Go: Your Homebrew Con Dining Guide

Each year the AHA partners with the Local Committee, a small group of volunteers to help present Homebrew Con. The 2019 Providence Local Committee is made up of passionate homebrewers from all over New England. You’ll find plenty of great beer at the conference, however the local committee shared their favorite restaurants to enjoy great food and beer.

The following options are within walking distance of the Rhode Island Convention Center or are a quick taxi/rideshare trip. Please note that this is a list of restaurants. If you’re looking for local breweries be sure to check out the Area Breweries and Retailers page!
